Jacob had a problem.

He had stolen his brother’s birthright.

Jacob was a habitual trickster and swindler.

He had gotten it naturally from his own mother and her brother Laban. It was part of his nature and his upbringing and experiences, especially with family. Blogger Sandy Kirby Quandt equates the relationship between Jacob and Laban to shifting goalposts.

He wanted to protect his family from danger.

But, aside from Jacob being human with frailties just like us all, he was a special kind of believer.

Jacob had a problem and he prayed to God about it.

Not only did he pray but he prayed for God’s protection.

Elohim Shomri or Jehovah Nissi

Elohim shomri = “God is my protector”

JEHOVAH-NISSI – Our Banner, a Banner of Love and Protection

I know that I need His protection.

I stand in the need of the protection only He can provide.

I need God to be My Protector.

I need Him to be that in my personal walk with Him, in my personal relationship with Him.

Prayer for Your Own Needs

SPOILER ALERT: God already knows what we need before we even ask for it.

@Prayer

God knows your needs.

He’s omniscient. He’s all-knowing.

God knows best.

He doesn’t need you to share what you need.

After all, Jesus shared how God knows how to meet our needs better than anyone else. He supplies all that we need.

Even if we have done wrong and stand in need of His protection, God can help us.

He just desires to hear from us. He just desires that we spoke openly with Him about our need for Him as our Father. The Father desires to hear His children say it and get it off their hearts.

Look at how He helped Nehemiah with the destroyed walls.

Pray for God’s protection today.

Pray that He guides you safely to and fro.

Pray that He watches over you throughout your comings and goings.


I haven’t just been twiddling my thumbs while praying about my ministry and business. I have been actively engaging and embarking on taking further steps with both.

I recently had a chat with Allan G from Motherland located in San Diego, California, and we discussed some things about business and building community through collaboration. Check out the video via YouTube or listen to the podcast below. Share comments or thoughts on either platform to let me know how we’re doing.

Jehovah Jireh is the Old Testament name that speaks of God as the Provider.

Jehovah Jireh means “God will provide.”

Abraham said, “God will provide himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they both went together. – Genesis 22:8

God as the Provider (Jehovah Jireh) appears first in Genesis. It stems from the part of Genesis where Abraham had to show his faith in God when called to sacrifice his chosen son Isaac. According to Wikipedia: “In the Book of Genesis, Jehovah-jireh or Yahweh Yireh was the location of the binding of Isaac, where Yahweh told Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a burnt offering. Abraham named the place after God provided a ram to sacrifice in place of Isaac.”

You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing. – Psalm 145:16

As believers, we must continually ask for and accept what God provides us in our lives.

He doesn’t have to give us anything. Yet, He continuously gives us what we don’t deserve, blessing us beyond our own belief.

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. – Psalm 37:25 (KJV)

Pray earnestly for God’s provision. Pray that He continues to supplies your daily needs and necessities. Pray that God’s provision allows you to prosper and grow closer to God as you use His provision to bless others. Pray that God stands out in your life as your provider, as your Jehovah Jireh. Pray for Him to provide for you and your needs, but also pray that He provides you with the stewardship to handle His provision as one trusted with such a blessing.

God truly will provide.

". . . we must earnestly, sacrificially, and prayerfully strive to be empowered with that same power that came upon them."
- A.W. Tozer, Life in the Spirit

Earnest, Sacrificial, and Always Prayerful

Tozer spoke of the need for constant prayer from the teachers and members of the “redeemed Body of which Christ is the Head” in an earlier passage. He was adamant about such prayer in practice in order for “any church to be a church of Christ.” He said that such a pursuit in practice must be earnest, sacrificial, and constant with prayer.

Earnest

In layman’s terms, earnest means sincere and intense conviction. According to the Bible, for one to be considered earnest means to be ardent in pursuit of an object or goal. In other words, to be earnest is to be zealous.

Photo by Oladimeji Ajegbile on Pexels.com

“And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up” (John 217, KJV). The zeal of the faithful believer is consuming. His or her heart is filled with an intense level of conviction for God’s agenda. Such an individual desires to see the kingdom of God come about. This type of earnest individual is driven by a deep internal conviction to work towards the kingdom of God coming to fruition.

We need to be more earnest in our lives as we serve the Lord daily.

Sacrificial

What types of sacrifices have you made for the sake of the Lord?

He sacrificed for your salvation. He paid the penalty for our sins with His own life. As Isaiah reminded us through his prophecy recorded ages before the Messiah’s advent, His sacrifice healed us.

God desires you to make sacrifices. He has shown us the way.

God desires to see you make sacrifices in your life for His namesake.

Always Prayerful

I used to always wonder how in the world could Paul really expect anybody to “pray without ceasing” (1 Th. 5:17). It always baffled me how that three-word sentence just sat right there in the middle of this spiritual to-do list for believers. I just didn’t see how that could be a reasonable expectation for believers, especially for those who were just coming into the faith and a personal understanding of what it meant to be a Christian.

Then life happened.

Through the trials and tests of personal experience, I became more accustomed to having to remain in constant prayer. While under spiritual attack, you have to pray constantly.

“Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV)

It is not as difficult as I once thought. It is a simple practice.

It is not too much to ask. It is a personal commitment.

It isn’t a burdensome thing. It provides us communion with God.

It is a simple three-word command.

It provides us a personal connection with God.

“Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV)

Get it Off Your Chest

When you go to pray, just let it all out.

Empty yourself of all that is plaguing you and bothering you. Pour out the burdens weighing down your soul. Open your mouth and unleash the very things that have you holding back tears and stuck in an emotional valley of sadness and worry.

Just get it all off your chest.

Tell God the things that you won’t tell your loved ones. Tell Him what is deeply rooted within your heart. Tell Him how much you fear what’s coming up. Share with God how much you dread the feeling of the aftermath of anything that has transpired lately.

Open your mouth and get it off your chest.

Get it Off Your Mind

Once you get it off your chest, get it off your mind.

Don’t drag that dread into the rest of the day.

You did one of the best things that you could do with such situations. You’ve taken it to God and told it to God. Now, what you truly need to do is trust it to God. Trust God to handle it like He knows best. He knows better than us how to handle any situation.

You’ve gotten it off your chest.

Now do your very best to get it off your mind.

Give it Over to God

Don’t try to hold onto what God can handle better than you.

It’s off your chest.

It should be off your mind.

It is in God’s hands.

Truly He knows how to handle it the best. He knows how to deal with it the best.

You gave it over to God in prayer.

Now totally give it over to God in faith.

Believe that He will deal with it as He sees fit.

Give it totally over to God.


God’s help is available.

Prayer is a means for tapping into God’s power as well as a mechanism for telling God what’s on your heart and mind.

What we need to see is that there are resources out there among the people of faith. These resources are provided to help us. These resources are here to help us get better at getting closer to God.

“Chant a Psalm” by Steel Pulse

The Prayer Book of the Bible

The Book of Psalms has been called many things. It has been considered the Hymn Book of the Bible by some. However, the Book of Psalms has also been seen as the Prayer Book of the Bible as well.

Book of Psalms Devotional

The Book of Psalms is full of prayers. It contains numerous prayers by multiple authors. David isn’t the only one who wrote psalms in the form of prayer. But authorship isn’t the only indicator of the strength of psalms as prayers.


Pray a Psalm (Chant a Psalm)

Reggae artists Steel Pulse shared “Chant a Psalm” and their album “True Democracy” in 1982. The lyrics shared here in this post show the power contained within the psalms. It wasn’t a major hit in the U.S. upon its release. It wasn’t a major hit among evangelicals either. Yet, the song still echoes the sentiments of one who finds the psalms found in the Bible to serve as motivation for staying true to developing a relationship with God through His Word.

It is through such devotion and spiritual connection to God’s Word that we as believers uphold our daily commitment to come before God with open hearts. Such a daily devotion to seeking God can serve as a catalyst for us to remain rooted in God’s Word while engaging in prayer.


As E.M. Bounds once said, “Prayer is humbling work.” We cannot get beside ourselves and lose touch with God. We need to stay connected to God through both prayer and His Word. Even the Serenity Prayer gives us a perspective of how to be humbled by our own time with God in prayer.

Open up the Book of Psalms. Read aloud one of the prayers found in the Book of Psalms with all the strength that you can muster. Stand on the sandy shores of the ocean or the rocky edges of a mountainside, taking in the majestic handiwork of God, letting the words of a prayer from Psalms cross your lips and enter into the atmosphere.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)

Paul was in prison. It was around AD 62 while he was in prison in Rome when he wrote to the believers in Ephesus. It is one of his Pauline Epistles. It is one of his Prison Letters. It was around the same time that he wrote to believers in Colosse (Colossians) and to an individual believer (Philemon).

He was in prison, but he was writing to these folks in Ephesus in order to encourage them.

I know. I know. It seems backwards. It’s like they should have been rallying the congregation to launch Paul’s Pen Pals as a prison outreach ministry or stirring up the community with the hashtag #FreePaulNow or something like that.

But that wasn’t the case.

Paul sought to offer these believers encouragement in their time of spiritual need.

Hindsight and Headlights

Having the Scriptures at hand offers us hindsight. It is said that hindsight is 20/20, and it is especially so with God’s people when we look back upon the figures of the Bible. People say that Aaron should’ve known better than to make that golden calf at the behest of the people. People see the acts of Judas in the Gospels and say how much they would never do such a thing if they were in the presence of the Lord in the flesh. [Oh, Really? But we all can join like a choir when we talk about how ALL have sinned and fallen short according to Romans 3:23. I just can’t with our holy hindsight at times. It makes us sound so self righteous.]

That holy hindsight has us looking down on folks in the Hall of Faith. That holy hindsight has us speculating on the saints of God of the past. That holy hindsight does not allow us to look deeper within and see where we, too, are not worthy enough to drink of the cup. It doesn’t make us keep a realistic perspective on our own status.

Headlights help us to see what’s up ahead. Hindsight is like the rearview mirror. Ot helps you see the past. Headlights help you to see what’s ahead as their light penetrates the darkness and provides a view of the upcoming pathway.

But we have these headlights shining upon the pathway ahead while we’re looking in the rearview. They shed light on our way so that we can walk. But we’ve got our necks cocked to the side, still pointing out that moment in the past where Joseph’s brothers made a mistake or even Solomon had a mishap. We can’t go too fast on the journey through the darkness if we try to look back too long or if we try to look beyond the headlights.

Help from Prison

Paul was writing to these believers in Ephesus on how to use their headlights. He wanted them to tap into “the strength of the Lord and the power of his might.” He understood that they would need those two for where they were headed.

Spiritual warfare requires spiritual weaponry.

He told the Ephesians that we are not up against flesh and blood. He warned them that the devil has his own weapons of warfare in use. He offered them some armor for their protection and to prevent them from being overtaken by what we call satanic attack.

Ten Days In (One-Third Through)

On this 10th day of our 30-Day Prayer Challenge for 2022, I realize how much the demonic forces want to prevent and prohibit us from experiencing God’s power. Don’t fall prey to the satanic attack or the demonic devices.

We’re one-third of the way through with this prayer challenge and this leg of a long journey with the Lord if we do not grow faint. And that makes us targets for such an attack.

Stand firm “in the strength of the Lord and the power of his might.”

Do not allow yourself to be defeated by these demonic devices.

Do not allow yourself to these satanic schemes.

Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.

Stand firm.

Tap into His power through continued prayer and stand firm against all attacks coming your way.

Prayer is not without its own challenges.

Jesus used His parable as a teaching tool in this passage of Luke to show His followers that they should always pray and not lose heart. He wanted them to pray “at all times.” He wanted them to remain dedicated and devoted to a life of prayer without losing heart.

To Not Lose Heart

To “not lose heart” is more encouragement than eloquence. To “not lose heart” is a warning against praying and giving up. To “not lose heart” is about where we go once we have given our petitions and requests over to God.

What Jesus was saying when He said to “not lose heart” was that we need to pray and “not give up” (NIV). We need to pray and “not become discouraged” (HCSB). We need to pray and “not to faint” (KJV).

Powered by Prayer

Jesus was not just trying to encourage His followers. He was also trying to empower His followers.

We can pray and walk away without tapping into the power of our privilege of prayer.

How?

  • We pray without faith
  • We pray without any expectations
  • We pray without any genuine concern about the outcome.

Jesus said in John chapter 15 that He’s vine and we’re the branches. As the branches, we can’t bear fruit that lasts without staying connected to Him. In other words, we’re not productive without Him as our main source of power. He gives us the Helper, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, to keep us connected to Him.

Our power comes through what Jesus provides us.

Prayer.

He shares and how us how to pray.

Our power comes through who Jesus provides us.

The Holy Spirit. The Comforter. The Spirit of Truth. The Helper.

Don’t lose heart. Keep praying.

We need to “always pray” and “not lose heart” by remaining connected to the Lord through the Holy Spirit. That’s our power source.

And definitely do not lose heart along the way.

The Lord’s Prayer

Jesus modeled prayer for us. It’s in the Bible. In particular, it’s in the New Testament. In the Gospels, Jesus modeled the act of prayer in both the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke. It’s what we have commonly come to know as the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:5-15; Luke 11:1-13) [Bible.org].

My Pastoral Ponderings poses some keen reflections on Luke’s passage, while Faith, Me & OCD offers some “top tips” on prayer regarding Matthew’s passage. When urging us like Charles H. Spurgeon to pray the Lord’s Prayer differently, another blogger online says so profoundly: “We can look at prayer as real power that brings God’s promises to fulfillment.” I like how Brave, Blessed, and Beautiful places an emphasis on a line by line breakdown of the Lord’s Prayer. Among all of the various types of prayer, the Lord’s Prayer stands out as a biblical hallmark for many Christians just like the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr is near and dear to many as a humbling reminder of our own need to be better than what we have shown thus far in our lives.

What we rarely talk about is how it came about, though.

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

What we know as the Lord’s Prayer is a response to a request. It’s how the Lord used a teachable moment to share with His own followers on how to pray.

The disciples of Jesus made a request. It was a simple and straightforward request. They sought the Lord’s guidance on how to pray.

Don’t look down on these people with holy hindsight before checking your Bibles. They were mainly fishermen. As the New Testament shows us in Acts, by all Jewish standards of religious education and upbringing, these men were considered “unschooled, ordinary men” according to Acts 4:13 (NIV). The New King James Version (NKJV) calls them “uneducated and untrained” in the same verse. In other words, what they truly knew about faith had come through the teachings of Jesus and by revelation after His ascension.

They wanted to know how to pray.

Jesus simply responded to their request by providing a model of prayer for them to follow.

    Prayer, as we see from the Bible, is learned behavior. We learn to pray. We should be taught how to pray. Yet, most of us learn prayer through the models provided by those who pray during worship or in our Sunday school or small groups.

    Prayer is a part of the relationship with the Redeemer.

    Prayer is an expectation of the believer.

    Prayer keeps us connected to Christ.

    What Jesus did was meet His disciples at the point of their need and built them up from there. He edified them, while He educated them, equipped them, and empowered them with this model of prayer.

    We’re using this model of prayer to help us get started with our 30-Day Prayer Challenge. We’re using this model prayer to guide us. We’re using it to focus us on our journey to more intense and intimate prayer time with the Lord.

    Join us on this journey as we seek the Lord’s power through prayer. Get the FREE newsletter as inspiration in your inbox for continuing on this journey day by day.

    And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors - Matthew 6:12

    Focus on Forgiveness e-newsletter

    The Necessity of Forgiveness

    Who needs to forgive someone? (Most of us won’t admit it, but we definitely need to forgive others.)

    Who has been forgiven? (If we are honest, God was working on forgiving us for our transgressions and trespasses long before we even considered seeking His salvation.)

    If we can just pull back the bandaid and get to the healing, we can see that forgiveness is part of the formula for us to experience the liberty Christ has provided to us through His sacrifice. Since we’ve been forgiven, we should be (you guessed and you’re right) more forgiving.

    Focus on Forgiveness

    Today’s prayer focus is keened in on forgiveness. In particular, it focuses on the power of forgiveness.

    I shared this in the newsletter related to our 30-Day challenge on prayer in more detail.

    Check out the newsletter and join us in prayer throughout September.

    Prayer has the power to power us up.

    Most of us know that. Many of us believe that. Not many people actually experience it because they fail to pray in faith or they “pray amiss” as referenced in James 4:3 in the New Testament.

    We want to change that through Life Path Multimedia Ministries and Faith Impact Training (F.I.T.). There is no need for any of us to fail in the faith that it requires of us to ask and receive from God. There is no need for any of the children of God to not fully feel the sense of power that God provides through prayer.

    Paul asserted to the believers in Thessalonica plainly: “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thes. 5:17)

    Watch our promo video on our upcoming prayer challenge.

    Let Us Pray!

    Our work is to pray and to pray without ceasing. Let’s start on this journey together this September as we focus upon the power of prayer.

    Join us in this effort to get powered up by God through prayer.
